Colorado Health Authorities Wanted To Ban Marijuana Edibles

Consuming marijuana edibles is much healthier than smoking marijuana. However, marijuana edibles have become the new villain in recent reefer madness campaigns. Maureen Dowd is partly to blame, after she had a bad experience when she couldn’t handle her marijuana edible experience. Bad parents are to blame too, as a handful of kids have had to go to a Denver hospital after getting their hands on marijuana edibles (something which occurs whether marijuana is legal or not by the way). Stories like that resulted in the Colorado Department of Public Health and [...]

Medical Marijuana Inc Files Huge Lawsuit Against Other Cannabis Companies

The marijuana industry can be a shady place at times, which is something that I’ve stated over and over. There are more ‘snake oil salesmen’ in the marijuana industry right now than I can stand. There are also more haters in the industry that I think there is in any other industry. People, for various reasons, want to throw other people under the bus, stab people in the back, or in a lot of cases, want to blatantly rip off or bash other people in the industry to try to [...]

How Much Money Does A Seattle Marijuana Store Make In A Day?

Legal recreational marijuana sales started in Washington near the beginning of July. However, until very recently, there was only one legal recreational marijuana store in Washington’s largest city of Seattle. There are now two stores in Seattle, with hopefully more opening sooner than later. The Seattle marijuana market consumer base is by far the largest in the state, and that translates to enormous sales revenues. How much does a Seattle marijuana store make in a day? Per Capitol Hill Seattle: Anybody who thinks Washington’s I-502 pot business is fun and [...]

Advanced Cannabis Solutions Purchases Bank Location In Denver

The Bank Facility Purchased By Advanced Cannabis Solutions Will Be Called ‘The Greenhouse’ And Will Eventually Serve As A Full Service Bank For The Cannabis Industry In the not too distant future, the cannabis industry will be allowed to bank like any other industry without obstacles. At least that’s my hope. But I don’t think that’s too bold of a prediction considering just how much money the cannabis industry brings in. There are already some cannabis businesses using banks, but there are many, many restrictions involved, and more bank accounts [...]

Colorado Marijuana Sales Continue To Increase

Legal recreational marijuana sales started in Colorado at the beginning of this year. Medical marijuana sales have been allowed for much longer. Overall, marijuana sales continue to increase in Colorado, especially for recreational marijuana. Per The Pueblo Chieftain: Marijuana sales in Colorado increased 10 percent in August, a bump attributed to more stores opening across the state. The Colorado Department of Revenue announced Thursday that in August, customers bought more than $33 million in recreational cannabis — up from $29.7 million in July and $24.7 million in June.

DEA 'Most Interested' In U.S. Investors In Canadian Marijuana Industry

The United States D.E.A. is a menace. They always have been, and they always will be until they are de-funded and shut down. The last thing the D.E.A. wants is to see the marijuana industry flourish, whether it be in the United States or abroad. Recently Reuters published an article discussing how the D.E.A. is taking a hard look at the Canadian marijuana industry to see who from the United States has invested there. Per Reuters: U.S. investors in Canada’s medical marijuana industry are betting they will not fall under [...]

Melissa Etheridge Is Starting A Line Of Cannabis Infused Wines

I have been a fan of Melissa Etheridge for a long time now. I’m not referring to her music, which is good. I’m referring to her as a person. Melissa Etheridge has been a long time supporter of marijuana reform, way before it was fashionable to do so. She is a cancer survivor, and frequently attests to marijuana’s medical value and how it helped her battle cancer. So I was very happy when I heard that Melissa is starting a line of cannabis infused wines. I’m not a fan of [...]

Many Marijuana Companies Don't Understand The Average Marijuana Consumer

There’s something that I have told people in the marijuana industry over and over and over and it almost always falls on deaf ears. The marijuana consumer is not like consumers in other industries. Whereas many other industries have cookie cutter consumers that have buying habits and preferences that can easily be predicted, the average marijuana consumer is like me – poor, doesn’t like corporations, and comes from a counter culture background. We don’t consume marijuana because it’s cool, we consume marijuana because we like to get high, and we [...]
